I don't think you should expect somebody else to record your music for free but, as it looks as though you only use electronic instruments, why don't you save up for a multitrack digital recorder? After getting tired of firing up the PC, I invested in a Tascam DP-24SD (just over £300 - 12 mono tracks, 6 stereo tracks, effects) and, although it isn't half as flexible as a DAW, it does what it says on the tin. I also have a cheap Behringer C1 condenser mic (£30 - the Tascam provides the required phantom power) for those extremely rare occasions when I have to record a voice or whatever. It's not great quality - it is a Behringer after all - but it's enough for what I do.

What is your computer? I assume it's Windows because all Macs come with Gargaeband free. There are a number of free recording programs out there for both OSes.

Reaper is the one worth looking into first. The "demo" is full featured and doesn't time out, I think it has a nag screen instead. The actual price for non-professional use is only $60, you can use it for free and if you like it enough pony up the cash. Pro users are expected to pay $200.

Presonus has a free version of Studio One called Studio One Prime that's a teaser for the full version. It does not accept VST plugins (you have to use the native ones, which include a sampler as well as FX) but it does support unlimited tracks for both audio and MIDI.

There's a number of other programs available but I'd check those two out first.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Dude there are so many demos. Also to be honest, get a job and by a proper setup if you want to make music. When I wanted to start my first business, I got a job as a lube monkey. It sucked but after saving the 400 dollars, I paid for the course in full. It didn't work out but since then, I've done the same thing for my music production studio. Just build the thing piece by piece. All the online free stuff is garbage. Learn using the proper tools like Ableton or Logic Pro. You can do it!
